The Fairy (French) 2011
La Fée

Starring Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon
Written and directed by Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon, and Bruno Romy

NOMINATED, Saturn Award-Best International Film, Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films, USA
WINNER, Golden Starfish Award, Narrative Feature (Abel, Gordon, and Romy), Hamptons International Film Festival
NOMINATED, Bronze Horse (Abel, Gordon, and Romy), Stockholm Film Festival

A very quirky comedy/romance about Dom (Abel), an unmotivated hotel clerk in Le Havre who meets Fiona (Gordon), a self-proclaimed fairy. She promises to grant Dom three wishes; he uses up two, she disappears, and he races to find her. Thus begins a most unusual romantic adventure.

Not a big award winner, and the humor in this film (much of it physical humor) is probably not for everyone. At first, I wasn’t too taken with it, but it grew on me. It’s certainly an unusual story. And I trust no babies were injured in the making of the movie. ☺

93 min. Not rated. Not suitable for children.
